The Arrival

Autumn has finally arrived! However, the heat is still lingering, that still gives you time to set all your Summer clothes aside, pick and choose your transition pieces and prepare your Fall wardrobe. Things you can keep for fall? Open toe shoes.
The fashion world has brought out trends where women are wearing sandals in the cold (bravery if you ask me), sandals with socks (smarter) and pairing it with Summer/Fall friendly looks.
Back when I was younger, anything opened around your toes after Summer was a no no. I’m glad not only is it “allowed”, but that we are more open to expanding our choices each and every season.
For example on my last post I wore those Schutz very high heeled sandals, the first time I ever wore them all Summer -I didn’t want it to be my last. I took a stand for all the open toes out there and I put together a Fall (but still kind of warm) look. I set aside a versatile piece like a denim skirt and paired it with some of my favorite Fall staples: Summer scarf, button down shirt and completed it with a fringe handbag.
I played around with the color scheme starting with the shoe because it was the one piece I did not want to let go of for this outfit (to prove my point). I saw lots of camel, tan, the dark blue from the skirt and the olive green of the shirt complimented those colors. Perfect first day of Fall. How do you think I pulled it off?
What trends are you looking forward to trying in the fall? Any Summer items making its way into your fall wardrobe?
 
Love, BudgetSai

Olive You

Olive in my eyes is another neutral that can go with many things in your closet. It seals the deal on many outfits and it’s a lighter option for the warmer temperatures. Just like black, you can pair it with simple colors like white, nude, and navy. If you want to be a little more daring go for a monochromatic look and throw on a pop of fuchsia colored lipstick for a little summer sass. It’s my guilty pleasure and this jacket can be thrown over dresses, over tops, as a top, or heck you can even tie it around your waist if it gets too hot!

For my outfit I chose a cream colored bodysuit making it stand out more, but wearing all black underneath can still make this bomber look on trend. The denim skirt was and is another obsession of mine, I have about 5 different styles. The difference in this one is I made a choker out of it. I felt that this length/structure could have gone a little shorter so I took off the seam and went to my favorite tailor and…voila! Choker number 3589! This year’s trends are killing me! I love them! I can’t get enough of them!

Which color is constant in your wardrobe?

Who else is into reworking clothes you own? What have you made over recently?

Denim x Denim x Denim

I went full on Britney and Justin today! I took denim on denim to the 3rd power indeed with this Dana Buchman denim tote.  Love that the bag is leopard inside just like my booties! Not sure if it was all the blue that had people turning heads or my ‘crazy hair I don’t care’ moment to top off the 90’s look.

Do you dig the curly redhead locks?

How do you think I pulled off the denim on denim on denim look?

All White

Finally! I call this look a tall glass of milk. Why? It does a body good. 😉

All white is something that’s very happening this season. I chose to explore the trend to show that the monochromatic look can work for all shapes and sizes and still be work appropriate. Pulled my hair back into a ponytail (which I never do) to let the neck and the holes do the talking. It was a day of exploring new territory. For the office’s AC cool temperatures I threw on a blazer, but kept it warm weather friendly in lace up sandals. Fashion is all about a balancing act. 😉

Do you like my all white look or should I stick to my all black looks?

Frozen

This past Saturday was my niece’s 6th birthday party. The Frozen theme turned out to be a huge success and she was very happy to have Elsa and Anna attend her special day. After all she is a princess herself and princesses get together and do princess things. My sister and I thought it would be a very cute idea for all the ladies in the family to wear frozen t-shirts and style it in our own way. First we found one at Forever 21, then JCPenny had more of a selection, but not many in our sizes, Kohl’s had everything we were looking for. When I think of a graphic tee I automatically think jeans and sneakers,  but I totally went against the norm pairing my tee with a leather mini skirt and a black blazer. As much as would have liked to be in heels in my sister’s backyard, I probably wasn’t going to be able to move around as much so instead I added my Prabal Gurung for Target sandals that I haven’t worn at all and a bunch of my favorite bracelets to my outfit, keeping it young and fresh for a kid’s party.

How do you wear your graphic tees?

xoxo, Budget$ai
